Personal Quote:

The work is really in the writing. I write again and again and again. I edit, I design each shot, and so by the time I arrive on set, I'm completely precise and prepared. But in my direction with actors? They have a little room. The precision is in the writing and preparation.[2015]

Trivia:

He directed 9 different actors in César-nominated performances: Catherine Deneuve, Gérard Depardieu, Jacques Weber, Anne Brochet, Vincent Perez, Juliette Binoche, Isabelle Carré , Grégori Derangère and Yvan Attal. Depardieu, Weber and Derangère won Césars for their performances in one of Rappeneau movies. See more »
